About: Stressed to the Max.
Does it seem like your to-do list always gets longer instead of shorter? Do you try to slow down but find yourself scrambling just to keep up?

With characteristic understanding and compassion, Joni Eareckson Tada helps you begin to slow down and sort through the sources of your stress. She offers the spiritual refreshment of Christ’s loving presence and words of encouragement, along with practical suggestions for exchanging a stressful lifestyle for a life of rest.
About the Author
Author Joni Eareckson Tada heads up Joni and Friends, a worldwide ministry to people with disabilities and their families, and is the best-selling author of many helpful gospel-centered Christian books, including When God Weeps and A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God’s Sovereignty.
“I feel as though forty-five years of quadriplegia have given me a unique insight into God's Word and life’s challenges,” Joni explains. “It’s as though my disability has given me the opportunity to ‘test’ the truths of the Bible; my wheelchair has served as a kind of ‘laboratory’ through which timeless principles of God's Word can be tried and affirmed." As a result, many people worldwide have been touched by Joni’s reflections on discipleship and suffering.
Joni Eareckson Tada has always has a heart to share with others what God has been teaching her through studying his Word and even through her wheelchair. “In the past, I’ve written on prayer, God's sovereignty, healing, and suffering. But in 2010, when I discovered I had stage 3 breast cancer, little did I know God was preparing me to learn a new slew of lessons about myself and about his grace to sustain. I hope that the reader will see that the insights I gleaned from battling breast cancer can help them conquer their own fears and anxieties about cancer—and come out the other end all the better for it.”
